Description

If the music of the past was characterized by the contest between consonance and dissonance, the music of the present day is a contest between sound and noise. This percussion piece is located precisely in this intermedia area.
The instrumentation is largely metallic, centering on gongs (Ching, Tching Lwo, Feng Lwo etc.) completed by a marimba.
Structurally the piece develops from points (isolated, in varying density) by way of lines (aleatory distribution of glissando cymbals) to a surface. The pulsations and rotations of the steel drums are followed by contrast with a flexatone improvisation, leading to a renewed pulsation, with the marimba taking a virtuoso part.
The work was first performed during the German Percussion Symposium Nürnberg 1986.
